Shocking! Toy Story 2 Almost Never Happened!

| Filed under: Film FlickersOops!Wacky, Tacky & TrueTom Hanks

Whoa!!

We had no idea one of the highest grossing animated features of all-time almost never made it out of the gate!

When Pixar was nearly finished with Toy Story 2, a nameless employee accidentally tripped some sort of self-destruct sequence on the company’s hard drive and they lost HUGE chunks of data — which, in a computer generated film, is everything.

The files containing Woody and a few of the films most memorable sequences were inadvertently deleted and the company feared they lost over a year’s worth of work and millions of dollars.

In the video (above), the creative team recounts the strangely exhilarating tale of the film that almost never was.

As Buzz Lightyear would say:

“One minute you're defending the whole galaxy, and, suddenly, you find yourself sucking down darjeeling with Marie Antoinette… and her little sister.”

Thankfully, a work-from-home Mom had a backup of the whole film on her home computer and
we Toy Story fans never knew the difference!

Good work, Mom!
